Wii Motion Plus price, date announced

Nintendo has announced its Wii Motion Plus controller attachment will arrive in stores June 8 and retail for a reasonable $19.99.

The accessory, which connects to the bottom of the Wii remote and increases the controller’s motion sensitivity to near 1-to-1 accuracy, will also be bundled with “Wii Sports Resort,” which ships July 26.

The advance release of the Wii Motion Plus is great news for sports gamers as both “Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10” and “Grand Slam Tennis” — set to release in mid-June — take advantage of the new peripheral.
